Paul Giem on New York Times and Scientific American on the Origin of Life 1-9-2016

Scientific American contained an even more blunt assessment on the NYT article, entitled "Pssst! Don't tell the creationists, but scientists don't have a clue how life began". Life doesn't seem to have a good definition in the articles, so one is proposed.
